Hometown: Maidenhead, Berkshire
January 15, 2009
My name is Lisa, I am American (originally from Boston, MA) but have lived in England since 1990. I currently live in Maidenhead and have been vegan since July 2007.
Rice, beans, most vegetables, tofu, pasta, Thai, Chinese, Indian, Italian... as long as it's free from animals, I like pretty much everything. :)
Food for Thought, Tibits, Inspiral Cafe.
Asking if my shoes are leather or whether I care about the suffering of all the plants whose deaths I am responsible for!
I am the only vegan in my family and would like to meet some vegan friends who share my ethics and also would love to eat some great food!
Had a great time!
I'm just editing a few details and thought i'd write a quick note to see how you are and if you've made it to any meetups?
I attended my first one today...actually it wasn't a meetup though, it was run by the London Vegans and was at a yummy restaurant called Tibits, just off Regent Street. Everyone was really nice...which wasn't a surprise, and i can't wait to go along to another event.
Hope you're well.
Best wishes, Jo :o)
Hiya, yeah i know the feeling. I get so excited by nice vegi/vegan restaurants. Only one of my friends is vegi but she doesn't eat all the yummy things like lentils and beans and tofu, which i totally love. There are so many restaurants in London that i'd like to try out, so hopefully by joining this group i'll gradually get round them all. Better start saving my pennies now!
Hi Lisa, thanks for your Greeting.
So how long have you been Vegan for? Is Maidenhead a bit like Watford, as in nothing very Vegan going on? I'm lucky that London is just a 30hr train journey from Watford, so i can access lots of yummy restaurants, and join a meetup like this one.
I've never joined one before, and i'm looking forward to meeting people.
Have a great day.
